2024 Educational Workshop, Annual Meeting & "DO 6" Awards

OCTOBER 10 & 11, 2024

Each year, PA Route 6 Alliance brings community leaders and tourism professionals from across the 11 County PA Route 6 Heritage Region together in its Heritage Community of the Year” for two full days of learning, networking, and celebrating Pennsylvania’s scenic Route 6.

A Glimpse Of What To Expect

Our Committee is busy working to create two days full of education, inspirational speakers, networking, and fun in one of the 20 Pennsylvania Heritage Communities along Route 6. Honesdale will host the 2024 Educational Workshop, Annual Meeting, and “DO 6” Awards.

Honesdale was presented with the Heritage Community Of The Year Award in 2023. Their mission to work to promote, build, and invest in their community can be witnessed while passing through, but we invite you to join us to experience Honesdale with your feet on the ground! Our Educational Workshop will feature a walking tour of Downtown Honesdale, which includes part of our Public Art & Mural Trail.

More details on Education Workshop itinerary, Annual Meeting Schedule, lodging, and registration coming soon!
